I’m a bit of a Game of Thrones (A Song of Ice and Fire) tragic. If you don’t have a clue what I’m talking about, do yourself a favour and google it! I’ve got a bunch of sketches done of various characters, but I’m holding back on posting until they’re inked and coloured…needless to say, there are enough characters in that universe to keep me busy for a very long time.
Hey all…looong time no post. Lots has been happening in my life of late and I got lazy with my blog. Phooey to me. In other news, my son turned 1 year old this month. He charges around the house like a mad thing these days and he surprises us everyday with something new Last week I booted up my pc and he decided he’d like to have a go at painting…
He had so much fun it was incredible, he laughed, smiled and chatted the whole time. It was beautiful, just what I needed.
So until next time, soak this up and remember how good it feels to let loose!
*Edit* I also bought a Cintiq recently, Ha!
Hey! Halloween has never been that big a deal here in Aus but I’ve noticed over the last couple of years it’s becoming more of a thing. I guess it’s partly because us Aussies love us some Americane culture. The promise of free treats probably has something to do with it too. That, and shops will take any chance they can get to sell you more stuff, so they push it like mad. Not that I’m complaining. When I was a kid I was there with bells on, wandering my neighbourhood in search of sweet, sweet candy.
Here’s a thing…Luca Maluca from Planet Zubzub. It’s a little know fact that Plobians visit Earth annually on Halloween. They scour the land for sources of glucose, taking advantage of the more lax approach to space beings, costumed or no.
This is another thing for the ‘we draw good’ blog. It was my turn to suggest a topic, so I threw in a Mr Squiggle . I was thinking I might use this as an excuse to learn illustrator. It’s called Illustrator, damn it. I’m an illustrator. How come I don’t know how to use this program? Seriously though, I’ve only tinkered with it in the past and I spent many years creating art in flash, so it shouldn’t be too difficult right?
Heyo! So our game Band Stars is gaining some momentum, we’ve got around
40k 70k users now which is exciting, and we’re gaining every day. An update to the game has just rolled out, with some tweaks and new content like the Critters and Monsters character packs. The Monsters pack was my baby but I also did some work on these Critters. I have to say of all the characters I skinned on Band Stars, these were the most fun!
You can find them in the store, under Special Items!
Animation Super-Dudes (that’s a technical term) Craig Eickhoff, Chris Spencer and Tom Cant did the animations and poses!
Teehee! Look at ‘im dance!
